Xarelto Cases Adding Plaintiffs

Xarelto Cases Adding Plaintiffs

Janssen Research and Development and Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals are continuing to be named in lawsuits for their negligence by users of the drug Xarelto. The defendants are the makers of the anticoagulant, Xarelto, and are claiming their product is the best anticoagulant in the market due to its' convenience. Xarelto lawsuits have recently been consolidated due to the growing number of cases filed.

Xarelto is a blood thinner being heavily marketed for its convenience due to the low maintenance of the drug. Previous blood thinners, such as Warfarin, require lifestyle changes such as diet restrictions and continuous monitoring through regular blood tests. Xarelto does not require any of these changes making it more appealing to a patient. One major difference between Warfarin and Xarelto, is that Xarelto does not have an antidote to stop the thinning of the blood to prevent users from bleeding uncontrollably.

The manufacturers have failed to warn users about the risks associated with Xarelto, including the lack of an antidote. Plaintiffs have sustained injuries from internal bleeding, uncontrollable bleeding, and death. They are claiming the manufacturers are providing false advertisement and marketing by misleading patients to believe Xarelto is safe.
